Prompt 3

Witnessing and noticing what’s present is uncomfortable. I dislike voicing my experiences to a stranger, not because I feel embarrassed or exposed, but because I don’t think they care that my belt feels too tight or that I am sleepy. Yet through the piercing eye contact, they reciprocate the concerns and I feel a communal combination of anxiety and trust. Is this happening daily without us realizing it?
